FSA Summer Work Party Weekend

Lets tackle the summer to-do list and have some fun when the work is done! Join us for the day or for the entire weekend July 18-19th, 2020 (camping available beside the Rolling Hills cabin). The FSA will provide Saturday lunch, diner, an evening bonfire (and social) as well as a Sunday breakfast to all volunteers. Check out the task list and let us know where you would like to help out on the Facebook events listing here or via emailing info@ferniesnowmobile.com. Thank you in advance to all the amazing volunteers who help keep our riding community strong. Without you – there would be no firewood to keep riders warm, no cabins to seek shelter in, and no land use agreements in place to ensure our trails remain open and maintained for motorized use. See you out there!

Work Tasks:

Rolling Hills Cabin (Team Lead Wayne Stamler): staining the deck, railings and outhouse, rebuilding outhouse stairs, building benches inside, trail signage and general clean up, battery and radio test.

Wrangler’s Cabin (Team Lead Justin Boehm): Complete roof flashing, install chimney snowdam, complete outhouse tin, trail signage and upper mountain trail clean up.

Firewood (Team Lead Matt Dolbec): Need 3 or so experienced chainsaw operators and several hands to split, haul and stack wood at each cabin. Trucks, quads / side-by-sides with trailers would be helpful.

Cooking Team: Help with meal preparation and clean up for all the amazing volunteers. If you are a Corporate Partner that would like to provide financial support for meals or if you are a great cook that would like to prepare something in advance for some hungry workers, we’ll cover the grocery bill – please reach out to us at info@ferniesnowmobile.com!

Saturday Night Social: Good tunes, bonfire, back country movie night? The sky’s the limit! Let’s get something organized to celebrate all the hard work done and the season ahead. Let us know if this sounds like something you would like to help arrange.

Remember: your time volunteered counts towards a discount on your 20/21 FSA membership!
